January 2009

Well, it has been 4 years now since I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer and all the tests show that I am cancer free. I still worry from time to time that it will come back. It is always a little thought in the back of my mind because I mistakenly thought I was totally healthy 4 years ago when there was ovarian and kidney cancer growing inside of me.

So, I have a choice. I can dwell on that possibility or I can enjoy this second chance at life and live to the fullest. Living to the fullest is what I choose to do. My energy is totally back, so I am going to boot camp classes at my gym, doing volunteer work at a drug rehab center and mentoring a young girl. My family is doing well and we are enjoying happy times at the moment. I am praising God for sunny days and energy to serve Him.

My focus for the last few years has been to run the race God has chosen for me and to not let anything hinder that goal. I am focusing all my thoughts on Jesus who wrote my faith story. He loves me way beyond all I can imagine and I am looking to Him when I get discouraged. This is based on a verse of scripture I have chosen as my “life” verse. It is found in the Bible in Hebrews chapter twelve, verses 1-3.

I’m thanking God that I am healthy enough to live these verses and I pray that you can gain your health and join me in living to please God.

Thanks for reading this site.

May God bless you today!
